Chef Kim's New Small Plates at Charlie Palmer Get Unconventional

Charlie Palmer's Small Plates Menu has undergone a fun and adventurous make over. Using fresh seasonal produce, Executive Chef Seakyeong Kim has added his own personal flair for international flavors and zest for something unconventional to the menu. His risks in the kitchen have paid off as all the new items are not only presented methodically but have flavors of depth and intrigue. The latest additions to the cocktail menu are also multi dimensional and well thought out by Charlie Palmer's mixologists.

The new menu items are a lovely updated addition to the old favorites, many of which are still on the Small Plates Menu. We love that we can still share a plate of their Kobe Beef Sliders and Blue Cheese Stuffed Dates while also enjoying a new Seaweed Salad or Steamed Escargot Dumplings. The new menu and the bustling bar vibe provide the perfect mix for a fun office happy hour or a catch-up date with a friend.
